In Nashville, Jackalope Brewing Company is now open for business (sort of)

Jackalope signI visited Nashville this past weekend with plans to check out the city’s newest brewery and taproom, Jackalope Brewing Company.

But when I got to the taproom on Saturday at 5 p.m., it was closed. No sign on the door about the hours or anything.

In fact, there was a group of about five other people standing at the front door who also wanted to check it out and were calling the phone number on the website in hopes of getting some info. No such luck.

Well, turns out Jackalope is open — but only on Fridays, from 4 to 8 p.m.

(Right before I left for Nashville, the website listed the days of operation as Thursday-Saturday, but it’s since been updated to just Fridays.)

Here’s the official word from Jackalope’s blog, Blogalope, from a May 30 post titled, “It’s The Equipment’s Fault:”

We got the last two equipment deliveries last week, so now it’s on to setting up our big equipment so we can distribute and be open more than one night a week. We’re dreaming big! I don’t know how many of you have ever unloaded large brewing equipment from a truck, but it’s both scary and time consuming. I tell you this, because pulling several tons of steel off a truck leaves little time for brewing. For the next two weeks, we’re going to be running a little low on beer. We think we’ll have two kegs this Friday … we just realistically think we’ll be out of beer by about 6/6:30ish. This is your warning. We think this shortage will last two weeks.” [source]

So I didn’t make it inside Jackalope or get to sample their beers. I’m definitely looking forward to that on my next trip to Middle Tennessee.

I did, however, make it to two other Nashville beer sites – Yazoo Brewing Company and Blackstone Restaurant & Brewery. More about those places on FuzzyBrew soon.

    Did you get the chance to take the tour of Yazoo? If you didn’t, it’s worth the drive over there. Kelly was our tour guide and was so much fun! The DIY tour at Blackstone is also very cool, plus their pizzas are awesome. :D
